Congratulations to NVC Commander Mike Yaguchi on his reappointment to the US Department of Veterans Affairs’ Advisory Committee on Minority Veterans!

U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs (VA) Denis McDonough reappointed Commander Mike Yaguchi to a three-year term on his Advisory Committee on Minority Veterans (ACMV).  Initially, Mike was appointed by then Secretary Robert Wilkie on October 1, 2020, through June 30, 2022.  Secretary McDonough reappointed him for an additional one-year term that expired on June 30, 2023. 

Mike’s service on the ACMV has been invaluable to advise the U.S. Secretary of VA on the Department’s effectiveness in delivering and administering benefits, programs, and services to minority Veterans.  The law requires the ACMV to submit its findings and recommendations in a bi-annual report to the U.S. Congress through the U.S. Secretary of VA.

Mike currently serves as Chair of the Veterans Benefits Administration Subcommittee. 

Congratulations Mike!
